I know isn't out yet blah blah blah....I am privilaged I guess.
I am painting his armour all white as my personal army of Grey Knights will be all white as it is the colour of purity plus my GKs will be all white with the red cross of the santiago (knights of the santiago - close links to the Spanish inquisition), and will contrast nicely to my Black Templars. Not sure if I sell this model once it is finished or keep it very much undecided.
Hopefully this will be finished tomorrow so I can take it to the shop ready for saturday.
Looks really good. I am interested in seeing the army in its entirety.
5000 pts of WoC, 5000 pts of Orcs and now 3000 pts of Ogres...What was I thinking ????
The pics make it look a bit more grey than white with the shading, but it gives it a bit of a weathered look that a special character should have so it works. Looking forward to your other models also. Great job so far.
could you maybe detail a little more how to paint that white armor? I want to do something similair, but my painting skill is nowhere near yours...
nothing like inter species cooperation!
That's quite a nice looking sword! I suppose I should also admit that the model looks great as well - It seems white works quite well for Grey Knights!
There are only a few glazes of white on the top surfaces of the armour giving it the shading you see, gone are the days I rely upon natural light for shading When I eventually get round to it the whole army is going to look like that....its only 1000 point tournament army kind of deal so about 5 models for grey knightsThe pics make it look a bit more grey than white with the shading, but it gives it a bit of a weathered look that a special character should have so it works. Looking forward to your other models also. Great job so far.I can but be warned it takes practice with white as it is a massively hard colour to paint, practice on bits of spare sprue before you commit to model....also I use a mixture of different paint brands but I will try and convert them to GW paints for easecould you maybe detail a little more how to paint that white armor? I want to do something similair, but my painting skill is nowhere near yours...
1. Prime - Grey Primer (spray/brush-on - totally your choice I choose spray for smoothness)
2. Basecoat - GW Codex Grey
3. Wet Blend OR Layer GW Codex Grey into GW Chaos Black (very diluted!!!!)
4. Wet blend OR Layer GW Codex Grey into GW Fortress Grey
5. Wet Blend OR Layer GW Fortress Grey into Vallejo Ghost Grey (sorry GW do not have an equivalent paint)
6. Wet Blend OR Layer Vallejo Ghost Grey into GW Skull White
Just be aware I apply glazes of the different colour through out the process as and when I feel they are needed, this comes with practice and not something that is done at any particular stage.Well so far I am pleased with how the model is progressing. The picture doesn't show the freehand in the corner of the cloak sadly, a little white cross of the Knights of the Santiago.That's quite a nice looking sword! I suppose I should also admit that the model looks great as well - It seems white works quite well for Grey Knights!
It needs to be finished tonight........no pressure!
Look good but need a bigger pic!!!
Hmm lovely Dee. White really does work well with the Grey(White) Knight models. Have you decided whether to keep him or sell him yet?
